Visited this in October on a whim. Was driving through and figured we'd stop. Great gift shop with nice historical information, books, and souvenirs. There is a tour of the Fort. If you visit make sure you stay for the musket demonstration.
The tours were led by guides dressed in the attire from the time which made it much more fun. They were very knowledgeable and answered any questions we had. It was also fun to just go explore on our own. The gun demonstration was also...More
We had stopped here on our journey between Niagara Falls and Niagara on the lake. Glad we did. Lots of interesting history here. A unique place to see and the staff were all amazing. The musket demo was quite awesome, which they do every hour....More
This was a side stop for us and I'm so glad we did! Very interesting place with an original building still standing from 1812. The gentleman that did the musket demo was fantastic! Probably the best interpreter I've seen. Very informative and entertaining. He said...More

Been on tours here many times both while in school and after. Always interesting and informative, whether you're on one of their typical daytime tours or their Fall Ghost Tours. Would definitely recommend checking this place out when you have the chance.

My answer may be too late, but this year (2017) is Canada's 150th birthday so many of their parks are free entrance. We didn't pay an entrance fee, just $6 Canadian to park. It's not that far to drive from Niagara Falls... More
My answer may be too late, but this year (2017) is Canada's 150th birthday so many of their parks are free entrance. We didn't pay an entrance fee, just $6 Canadian to park. It's not that far to drive from Niagara Falls. I think you could enjoy it a bit. I'm just not sure how late the people at the site are there doing re-enactments.
